About the book

Lung cancer continues to be the leading cause of cancer mortality among both men and women in the world. Recent advances in prevention, screening, and management in the past decade have led to significant improvements in survival and quality-of-life. Tobacco treatment and computed tomography screening have made strides in decreasing the incidence of advanced cases. Local treatments like minimally invasive surgery (including robotic and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) and radiotherapy (including intensity-modulated radiotherapy and stereotactic body radiotherapy) have contributed in improving effectiveness and tolerability of potentially curative treatments in early-stage, locally advanced, and oligometastatic disease. Chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy options have expanded rapidly, with new combinations showing improved outcomes even for those with polymetastatic disease. Finally, palliative care has shown a survival benefit when instituted early in the course of metastatic lung cancer management.

This book will comprehensively review the evidence that has driven personalized medicine from a variety of multidisciplinary perspectives by lung cancer experts.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
